    10/20/2013 10:52:20 AM PDT · by george76 · 32 replies
    Arab American pilgrims from the Metro Detroit area where attacked and assaulted, for what appears to be sectarian reasons, on Wednesday, Oct. 16, while performing the rituals of Hajj in Mina, Saudi Arabia. Mina is a town near Mecca, where pilgrims sleep in tents and stone three pillars, representing the satan, with seven pebbles, on the last day of Hajj. The Saudi government has built thousand of air-conditioned tents to accommodate pilgrims, during this ritual. A known female community leader said that when the local group entered Tent Section 40, an area designated for American, European and Australian Muslims, a...

    This footage is taken from a pro-Morsi demonstration in Egypt after the Egyptian military intervened on behalf of the millions of Egyptians who demanded an end to the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. While addressing Abdul Fattah al-Sisi, the Egyptian commander-in-chief, Wahhabis who support Morsi vow to become suicide bombers that will target secularists, Christians, Shiites, and all other opposition forces. A Wahhabi lady covered in black vowed to burn her Christian compatriots.

    Other countries’ propagation of a stricter form of Islam in Albania is causing tensions with Christians and with other Muslims, a charity leader says. Peter Rettig, head of the South-East Europe Section of the Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need, said that young imams trained in Turkey and Saudi Arabia are spreading “a different form of Islam from what is customary” in Albania. The countries are strongly promoting the building of Islamic schools. “This is leading to tensions,” he told Aid to the Church in Need. The Catholic charity’s project partners have reported incidents that are “not dramatic”...

    SARAJEVO -- During the past week, an international Wahhabi organization has launched a campaign in Bosnia-Herzegovina calling on non-Muslims to convert to Islam. The organization, which calls itself "Poziv u Raj" (Invitation To Heaven), has been putting up slick billboards and posters and distributing leaflets in Sarajevo, Bihac, Sanski Most, Maglaj, Zenica, Travnik, Tuzla, and Tesanj. The group also has been organizing public lectures in Bosnian cities and towns by a Greek man and a German man who recently converted to Islam. Those recent converts have repeated the group's call for non-Muslims to convert to Islam. They have also been...

The Mostar-based Croatian newspaper reported Jan. 6, quoting security sources that the special training camp is located near Gornja Moaca in the northeastern part of the country. U.S. intelligence agencies have been closely monitoring Muslims in the Balkans amid concerns that fundamentalist Muslims have been recruiting there.

    It's not easy to find a place to meet the man who goes by the name of Abu Mustafa. A number of places were agreed on and jettisoned. Finally, after hours of cruising around Gaza City with Abu Mustafa's driver, the call came. The meeting would take place on the beach. There are enough people on the beach that one doesn't attract so much attention, the caller explained. How absurd this notion was would soon become clear. Most people don't stick out on the beaches of Gaza to the degree that Abu Mustafa does. He picks his way across the...

    MECCA, Saudi Arabia - These days it‘s easier to find a Cinnabon in Mecca than the house where the Prophet Muhammad was born. As a result, some complain that the kingdom‘s Islamic austerity and oil-stoked capitalism are robbing this city of its history. Abraj al-Bait is a complex of seven towers, some of them still under construction, rising only yards from the Kaaba, the cube-like black shrine at the center of Muslim worship in Mecca.

  • Pristina: Wahhabis in Kosovo (New War Coming Soon)

    19 March 2007 | 18:08 | Source: Tanjug PRIŠTINA -- Albanian media in Kosovo report today the Wahhabis have been active in the province since the early 1990’s. The reports claim that the radical Islamic sect has 30 religious schools in Kosovo, adding that their activity presents the Albanian community’s identity with “a serious challenge”. The Wahhabis mainly work to religiously indoctrinate impoverished Albanians, Bosniaks, Egyptians and Ashkalis, according to the Priština-based media. The sect, which refers to its members as “fighters of pure Islam”, impose their “exclusive teachings” during funerals, circumcision rituals and other religious gatherings, offering their version...

After immense agonies in the mainstream media (MSM), those like myself who predicted the report, once released, would largely be ignored by President George W. Bush, are being proven right and neoconservatives who support a continued commitment to the transformation of Iraq have exhibited renewed influence. Only a couple of lines in the report were worthy of comment. One appears on page 29 of the printed version: "Funding for the Sunni...

In March, after the Madrid train bombings, Beliefnet talked with Michael Sells, a renowned comparative religions scholar whose specialty is Saudi Salafism, also known as Wahhabism, about the state of play in global Islam and terrorism. We are reprinting it today because his comments are, if anything, more accurate now than they were a few weeks ago. What does this mean for the landscape of worldwide Islam? If it’s true that...

    As a close U.S. ally in the war against terror, Pakistan has been designated a "major non-North Atlantic Treaty Organization ally," allowing the Islamic Republic to join an elite group of nations, which are granted significant benefits in the area of foreign aid and defense co-operation. But when it comes to the U.S. war on Islamist Terror, this alliance, on close examination, does not translate into a  fruitful relationship. Terrorism in Afghanistan does not show any signs of going away, anti-American sentiments are on the rise in Pakistan, and religious extremism continues to gain new ground.

    I wrote late last year, in a TCS column about the death of a leading Sufi, or spiritual Muslim teacher, who had lived for many years under repressive conditions in the Saudi kingdom. His name was Syed Mohamed Alawi Al-Maliki. As I described him then, he was "a leading representative of the Hejazi tradition in Arabia -- that is, of the culture of Mecca and Medina before its takeover by Wahhabism," the state religion of Saudi Arabia, which is more an ideology than a manifestation of faith. Since then, I have studied an important work of Shaykh al-Maliki, on the...

    Intelligence officials in Israel say al-Qaida is trying to establish operational cells in the Palestinian Authority, attempting to reach out to the Israeli-Arab communities in the Galilee and in the so-called ''triangle region,'' according to Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin, a premium, online intelligence newsletter published by WND. According to G2 Bulletin sources in Tel Aviv, the Internal Security Service (Shin-Beth) has foiled a number of attempts by al-Qaida sympathizers to cross the border between Israel and Jordan, planning to establish cells in Nablus and Jenin. Similar attempts were made to penetrate the Gaza Strip through the underground tunnel systems coming...

    LONDON — European intelligence and security agencies are concerned that Al Qaida has been recruiting Western youth to fight against the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq. European officials said security agencies in countries such as Britain, France and Germany have detected signals of Al Qaida recruitment of volunteers to fight the U.S. military in Iraq. The officials said the recruitment effort targets both young Muslims as well as those as those who oppose the U.S. presence in Iraq. "There is a sort of daily understanding of the evolution of a movement that is extremely complicated and difficult to understand," said Jean-Louis...

    American Muslims need to get their priorities straight. Synagogues and consulates are being attacked in Turkey. U.S. troops are fighting an Iraqifada. And Palestinian Arabs continue to blow themselves up in suicide-homicide attacks on Israeli citizens.

    WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has advised federal agencies to initiate emergency counterterrorism measures to prevent possible al-Qaida car bombings planned during the last days of the Muslim holiday Ramadan, according to an internal department memo obtained by WorldNetDaily. Citing al-Qaida's "increasingly sophisticated" car-bombing tactics, it recommends security guards tow all vehicles parked illegally in and around government facilities, if their owners cannot be identified, and inspect the undercarriage and other areas of vehicles entering sensitive areas, among other high-threat protective measures.

    Attack of the INGOTs Posted: November 22, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern By Tom Marzullo © 2003 Currently, "What next?" seems to be a common thread in the mainstream media. For a group of educated people who spend most of their waking hours broadcasting and writing about everything that they think you should know about trees, there seems to be a certain lack of understanding that a sufficient number of them will join to comprise a forest. Now that I have been sufficiently obscure, let us look at one such military and political forest in Saudi Arabia by discussing a...

    The Council on American-Islamic Relations once again is demanding an apology for an alleged slur of Muslims, this time asserting a veteran cartoonist has cryptically defamed Islam. The Washington, D.C.-based group sent out a dispatch to its e-mail list after a "B.C." cartoon last week by Johnny Hart was publicly questioned on a Washington Post Web chat page. The cartoon shows a caveman entering an outhouse at night, and then saying, from inside, "Is it just me, or does it stink in here?"

    The war in Iraq continues to entice Islamic terrorists from around the world – all traveling to the newly liberated Arab state for the purpose of killing Americans and turning world opinion against the rebuilding of the nation, reports Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin. The Egyptian security and intelligence community was ordered by President Hosni Mubarak to investigate Islamic militant recruitment efforts for a ''jihad campaign in Iraq,'' according to the online intelligence newsletter. Police have obtained information of a number of mosques and prayer halls where young worshippers were encouraged to volunteer to go to Iraq to fight U.S.-led coalition...

    LONDON, Oct. 31 — Across Europe and the Middle East, young militant Muslim men are answering a call issued by Osama bin Laden and other extremists, and leaving home to join the fight against the American-led occupation in Iraq, according to senior counterterrorism officials based in six countries.

They estimate that hundreds of young men from an array of countries have now arrived in Iraq by crossing the Syrian or Iranian borders. But the officials say this influx...

    The prime minister of Malaysia, Mahathir Mohamad, informed the world this month, among other things, that "Jews rule this world by proxy. They get others to fight and die for them." Condoleezza Rice, the U.S. national security adviser, described Mahathir's comments as "hateful, they are outrageous." But she then added, "I don't think they are emblematic of the Muslim world." If only she were right about that. In fact, Mahathir's views are precisely emblematic of current Muslim discourse about Jews - symbolized by the standing ovation his speech received from an all-Muslim audience of leaders representing 57 states. Then, a...

    On Thursday evening we went to Marks & Spencer department store. On the way, the bus conductor wanted it known to the passengers that he was Moroccan. He went from seat to seat making a point of greeting passengers in Arabic, and animatedly chatting with women in traditional Muslim clothes. He did make a point of grunting to those of us who were, shall we say, ‘traditional locals.’ We did not feel slighted but as we approached Oxford Street he went to the front of the bus and told those of us seated at that end of the vehicle that...
